New research by the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust - a charity which aims to improve the understanding of the Hebridean marine environment through research and conservation - reveals thriving communities of whales, dolphins and porpoises in the Hebrides. Now the charity is now looking for volunteers to help continue its research.

Wildlife tourism in the Scottish Hebrides has received a boost thanks to a major grant from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund to develop a community based ecotourism scheme. Conservation charity Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT) has been awarded £120,000 from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund enabling it to launch an ecotourism project in 15 island communities across the Hebrides.
